Remember when President Barack Obama accused Washington of getting distracted and taking its “eye off the ball” of the economy? Well, he and/or his Twitter team are taking their eye off the ball of the economy.

Obama or whoever is writing his official Twitter feed is becoming that guy.

Rebadging “global warming” to “climate change” is one of the greatest political switcheroos of all time. The fact is, the climate is not static and is always changing. The rocks cry out to that effect. The sun is a variable star, with minimums and maximums, and as its energy output varies, Earth’s climate is likely to vary. History teaches us that. The question is, does anything mankind does play any role in the changes? The science on that is very much unsettled. But Barack Obama, or whoever runs his Twitter feed, isn’t interested in science. They’re interested in being that guy — the half-informed, argumentative dope who becomes such a pest that you end up unfollowing his feed.

 

If you disagree, you’re nothing but a “climate denier.”

As if someone can “deny” “the climate.” Well, actually, those who want to make the climate political are denying the fact that the Sun and nature play a far larger role than humans do or can play.

They also deny the fact that their prescription for the economy — higher taxes, to pay for government picking winners and losers in creating so-called “green” jobs — hurts the overall economy. Deniers!

This is just another in a long series of actions that Obama, or whoever is running his Twitter feed, is taking to divide people and put those who disagree with his rigid ideology on the defensive.

To distract from his massive failures — the sputtering economy, and the latest illegal, politics-driven delay in Obamacare’s implementation.

On the other hand, let me go on record: I do believe the climate is changing.

What I absolutely deny is the Left's contention that they can make it all better and save us all from certain doom, if only we shut down the economy for them, put them in charge, and shut up and behave like good little proles are supposed to.

We gave them money and saw what they did with it. That's settled science.

Tells followers "Make them feel the heat!"

First recommended action is "Blizzarding."

Conclusion: unfocused, and unclear on climate.

This idiot doesn't even know what science is.

In order for science to "say" anything the results of an experiment supporting a theory have to be replicatable by anyone. That means you share your data, you share your methods and you let everyone who's interested reproduce your work and see for themselves. Anyone who doubts gravity is free to build themselves a little vacuum chamber and drop a feather next to a ball bearing, for instance.

Climate "scientists" rarely do this. They torture, twist and fudge their data until it kinda-sorta supports the answer they wanted to get from the start. When the real world inconveniently refuses to reflect that data they carry on without a pause and never entertain the possibility they might be wrong.

I lost all my respect for climate scientists when their response to the leakage of "...trick to hide the decline..." consisted of them doing frothing with patronizing spew telling us how the word 'Trick' has a perfectly respectable meaning in science, while at the same time utterly ignoring the fact that the problematic word was 'Hide".
